Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) has completed construction of Unit 2 gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) system at the Tanjung Priok Power Plant (Jawa-2), a natural gas-fired power generation facility being built on Java Island in Indonesia.

Construction has been completed ahead of schedule and the GTCC system went into operation on 18 July 2018.

Under the Jawa-2 project, Indonesia’s state-owned electricity provider PT PLN (Persero) is building an 880MW plant comprising two GTCC power generation systems.

Unit 1 went into operation as a simple gas turbine system in June 2018 with output of nearly 300MW, and Unit 2 has now joined to produce equivalent wattage. Both units have been completed ahead of schedule.

PLN director WS Haryanto said: “We greatly appreciate the contribution the contractor has made to inaugurate the new plant’s commercial operation ahead of schedule, and prior to the 18th Asian Games.

“The Jawa-2 project is important for both the competition and the Java power network.”

The Jawa-2 project has been taken up to construct GTCC power generating facilities in Tanjung Priok, a port city approximately 10km northeast of central Jakarta.

MHPS secured the full-turnkey order for the power plant in partnership with Mitsubishi Corporation and local construction and engineering firm PT Wasa Mitra Engineering.

MHPS is responsible for providing two M701F gas turbines as well as two exhaust heat recovery boilers, one steam turbine, and auxiliary equipment. Mitsubishi Electric has supplied the generators.

Operations as a GTCC system, generating power by gas turbine and by a steam turbine utilising recovered exhaust heat, are slated for 2019.

With the launch of the latest system, the total generation capacity of equipment supplied by MHPS for power producers has reached 12GW.

MHPS said that it will continue to promote the use of low-carbon energies as a way of contributing to protection of the global environment through expanded adoption of high-efficiency power generation facilities.
